Herm Edwards Signed 8×10 Photo – Philadelphia Eagles “Miracle at the Meadowlands”
This 8×10 photograph has been personally signed by the Philadelphia Eagles’ Herm Edwards in blue sharpie marker. Perhaps best known today for his brilliant football mind and “Hermisms,” Edwards began his NFL career as an undrafted free agent coming to the Eagles in 1977. He would spend 9 years with the team as a defensive stalwart, never missing a game. During his career he would make 33 interceptions and recover one history making fumble for a touchdown. On November 19, 1978 the New York Giants were poised to defeat the area rival Philadelphia Eagles at home by a score of 17-13. As the final seconds of the game ticked away, Giants quarterback Joe Pisarcik prepared to take the final snap. Instead of kneeling on the ball as expected, Pisarcik attempted a hand off to Larry Csonka but botched it and fumbled the football. Herm Edwards was ready to capitalize on this gross mismanagement and scooped the ball away from a diving Pisarcik, returning it 26 yards for the game winning score. Dubbed the “Miracle at the Meadowlands” this play would be the defining moment of Edwards’ playing career. This photograph depicts the moment Edwards recovers the fumble and begins his run to history.
